DEVIL'S BRIDGE, NEAR ABERYSTWYTH. Photo. by Maclardy, Osiceztry. j .Y. The Devil's Bridge has been variously described, and at times in language so nearly approaching the sublime as to verge on the ridiculous. But Wordsworth, who was here in 1824, has left on record his impressions of the scene in a sonnet. Wordsworth, it is true, saw the falls to perfection, after heavy rain but at all times the glen at the Devil's Bridge is one of the most remarkable scenes in Wales. The devil, by all accounts, seems to have had a great deal to do with bridge-building in the olden times, for we read of several structures which he had a hand in erecting, and the tradition connected with the famous bridge on the St. Gothard Road, in Switzerland, is so like that told in Cardiganshire, that Longfellow's version in the Golden Legend might serve for the two.
